A Password Changer can automatically change the passwords for many of your saved websites by directly logging in to generating strong, unique passwords, then changing the passwords for those sites on your behalf.

Everything is done automatically. You will see the window showing the status of each password change and confirmations that your passwords were successfully changed.

An automated password changer sounds like a step above a premium feature.
A feature that you could set how often (either per saved login or for all passwords) you want your passwords changed. Also the feature should immediately and automatically change any password that has been compromised.

The Bitwarden software would have to know the site link where password changes are done from for each saved login.

For some sites this may not be possible as the sites want to send you a password or text to change your password, but it is possible for sites that only ask for the original password and the new password in order to change the current password.

I get exited thinking about this feature. If you didnt start using a password mgr as soon as you started using the internet, then its highly likely you have many sites with the same password, making many people more vulnerable. A feature like this could change all of that. Being the first software with such a feature, sounds like a game changer.

That’s a good idea.

I would like to change a few passwords from time to time, not all of them and not regularly, so a button to do that with an individual entry would be ideal.

This is a standard feature in LastPass Premium and Dashlane paid version.

Has anyone here actually used the automatic password changers in other password managers?

They’re not that great and only work for a few websites, most of which no one uses.

Every website is different and each must be programmed and kept updated because all websites change.

There is also the issue of where to change the password. For example, Dashlane does it on their server so that means your plaintext password exists outside your vault and on their server. Lastpass does it in the extension but it’s not as reliable as the conditions change because everyone’s web browsers are set up differently. That is why Dashlane does its sever side because they control the environment but that also means they see your plain text password when they do it.

Until websites adopt a standard for password managers to use to auto change passwords, this feature is not worth it.

Not only that, but this feature is not worth it once all your passwords are unique. Changing passwords often doesn’t help better secure you. You only need to change a password if you think it’s been breached or stolen. Until then the password can stay like it is because it’s unique.
